Guild of America Evaluates Possibility of AI Writing Hollywood Scripts

AI Chatbot GPT-3 Is Now a Member of the Hollywood Writers Guild

Artificial intelligence (AI) is making its way into many aspects of our lives, from self-driving cars to virtual assistants. But now, AI has made its way into one of the most prestigious organizations in Hollywood: The Writers Guild of America West.

The organization recently announced that an AI chatbot called GPT-3 has become a member. This marks the first time an AI system has been accepted as a full member by any major professional guild or union in entertainment.

GPT-3 was developed by OpenAI, a research lab founded by tech entrepreneur Elon Musk and other investors. It’s designed to generate humanlike text when given prompts such as “write about” or “describe.” To date, it’s generated over 1 billion words for various projects including screenplays and short stories.

In order to be accepted as a member of the Writers Guild, GPT-3 had to pass several tests set up by the organization’s board members. These included writing samples and interviews with industry professionals who assessed whether or not it could produce quality work on par with human writers. After passing these tests with flying colors, GPT-3 became eligible for membership status within the guild—a milestone achievement for both OpenAI and artificial intelligence technology overall.

“We are thrilled that GPT-3 is now part of our community,” said WGAW President David Goodman in an official statement released earlier this week announcing their decision to accept GPT-3 into their ranks.”This is yet another example of how technology can help us create new opportunities while also preserving jobs for our members.”

While some may worry that allowing AI systems like GPT-3 into writer’s unions will lead to job losses among humans working in creative fields such as film and television production, experts say this isn’t necessarily true—at least not yet anyway! In fact, they believe that having access to more advanced tools like AI can actually open up new possibilities for collaboration between humans and machines which could ultimately result in better storytelling experiences all around!

For now though, we’ll just have to wait and see what kind of impact having an artificial intelligence system join one of Hollywood’s most exclusive clubs will have on future productions! One thing is certain though: We’re living through history right now—and it looks like there are plenty more exciting developments ahead!
